TORONTO, Dec. 20 /CNW/ - In one of the least scientific yet most accurate
surveys of public opinion, the mighty Air Farce Chicken Cannon is now
registering its final votes, and New Year's Eve doesn't look happy for Brian
Mulroney and Karlheinz Schreiber.
For its annual year-end comedy special, the resilient Royal Canadian Air
Farce invites viewers to name the most irritating or annoying personalities
who most richly deserve a gooey high-pressure blast from that winged weapon of
messy destruction, the Chicken Cannon.
Previous winners have included U.S. President George Bush, Prime Minister
Stephen Harper, and last year's victims, Bell Canada spokesrodents Frank and
This year's leading contenders are the two star witnesses of Ottawa's
$300,000 Search for Truth, former Prime Minister Mulroney and lobbyist
Schreiber. Close behind are Prime Minister Harper (who's been elevated to the
Chicken Cannon Hall of Infamy along with his fellow leader President Bush.)
Disgraced tycoon Conrad Black, Environment Minister John Baird, "Taser-happy
RCMP officers," Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Liberal leader Stephane Dion
round out the top ten.
The top five vote-getters will be revealed on December 31 during the Air
Farce New Year's Eve Special at 8:00 PM on CBC Television. The Chicken
Cannon's four runners-up will get smacked by flying rubber chickens, while the
leading target can expect a blast of monstrously messy guck.
The Chicken Cannon is a uniquely Canadian weapon: it's messy, humiliating
and makes a loud noise, but causes no actual damage. Air Farce hopes that one
day all wars will be fought this way.
